andrea mitchell. andr andrea, i don't need to tell you, this is your line of work. you ask any u.s. official what keeps you up at night, and they answer, these two countries, nuclear nations, and especially pakistan. >> pakistan is about to pass france as the fifth greatest nuclear power in the world and they're on a hair trigger. there's no hot line between india and pakistan, only last week, diplomats from both countries meeting out at stanford university trying to talk about establishing a hotline. so unlike the cold war, there is no communication, they could have an accident. this time india has said in the past that they were restrained three years ago when it was proved that pakistan was behind the attack, they were restrained by the u.s., by the rest of the world, they did not retaliate. this time most likely they would. only a couple of days ago i was talking to a prominent indian diplomat saying i could not persuade any country not to attack if this happened again. and now it potentially is happening again. it could be an indian group, officials don't know here or in ind

the economy and create jobs. zbroo good day i'm andrea mitchell here in washington. time is indeed running out. that is the message that the president delivered today as he put more pressure on congress to negotiate a compromise. mr. obama said the two sides are in handcuff agreement about how to cut spending and the need to tackle tax reforms and entitlements in the months to come. at the same time house republicans took a step away from compromise making concessions to the tea party today. that picked up enough votes to likely pass the stalled boehner bill. >> i think this is basically a variation of cut, cap and balance. >> it's such a game changer. i need to read the language. but i like where we're going. >> i am. absolutely. i'm enthusiastic. >> that saves speaker boehner from further embarrassment, possibly the loss of the speakership. what do democrats have to say? with me steve israel, the chair of the democratic congressional caucus campaign committee. the speaker added a balanced budget amendment vote down the road and some further commitments down the road. does that change his bil

woodward, the national journalist, jamie tarabay, abc's andrea mitchell and "the chicago tribune"'s clarence page. the nasty unemployment numbers are a psychological problem for the country and a huge political burden for this president. has the tea party's flirtation with default on the national debt handed barack obama a huge win, while the vast middle of the country, the middle that decides elections, see the president as the grownup? take a look at poll numbers. in his 2008 win, president obama was the choice of 60% of self-described moderates in the exit polls. today he still has 55% of those moderates. what do moderates favor? when it comes to the national debt ceiling, 55% of moderates say raise it. bob, we have two big news stories facing us. the unemployment rate going up to 9.2%. the united states facing a debt crisis. maybe not reaching the debt ceiling bill by the end of this month. the republicans are using the jobless figures to say no taxes whatsoever. they're also saying no deal. have they misread the american public? >> this is a moment when obama has to deliver.

'm andrea mitchell live in washington. well, the jobs we begin with that surprisingly dismal jobs report along with the rising unemployment rate, private sector jean-bertrand growth has essentially come to a stand still. cnbc senior economics reporter. steve, just what is your take away from these numbers today? >> it was a terrible, terrible report with absolutely no silver lining that anybody could see. one economist used three words to describe the report, he said it was weak, weak and weak. another used two words they were unmitigated disaster. let me just give you some of the numbers. the 18,000 payroll numbers was -- they were expecting 125,000, what was worse, andrea, was they revised back the prior two month and got rid of 100 job in addition to that. part of what's going on is declines in the government workforce at the state and local level something like 39,000 government jobs were lost in the month of june and 48,000 the month before that. >> given those revisions is that a hiccup or the possibility of a double dip? >> well, i think most economists still hold out hope, andrea
